  • The Extraordinary Life of Nelson Mandela

  • The story of the first black president of South Africa.

    NELSON MANDELA is known for dedicating his life to fighting for equality in South Africa and overthrowing racial segregation.

His childhood wish was granted when he became the first black president of South Africa, and an icon for hope, change and equality.
